Summer camps

separator It’s hard to find the right camp for your child. You probably get recommendations from friends and friends of friends. But if you’ve been having trouble this year, visit the American Camping Association They have a database that allows you to search by location and activities and by the age of your child.

And here’s something to keep in mind, no matter what camp you child ends up going to: according to the American Camping Association, there has been a steady increase in the number of campers who are on prescription medication. Many of these children have asthma. When packing for a child’s camp stay, make sure he or she has sufficient medication for the duration of the visit. Make sure all the medications are up-to-date. Include written dosing instructions, along with the doctor’s and pharmacist’s phone numbers, in case of questions.

Camps are usually otherwise prepared if children get injured or sick. However, children should bring their own sunscreen, insect repellent and lip balm to protect against lots of outdoor time!
